Awhile back, I impulse-bought some microwavable Indian entrees at Natural Grocers. The other night I decided to give them a shot.
Tasty Bite Spinach Channa
Sukhi's Vegan Chili Chicken
I really enjoyed the Spinach Channa. Chickpeas in a gingery spinach sauce, very nicely seasoned, not bland but not overly spicy either.
My pic of the chili chicken didn't turn out at all, but it looked pretty much like the photo on the box. Soy chicken pieces in a sweet chili sauce, with little bits of bell peppers and other veggies. It comes with a small piece of naan bread. I liked this dish all right, but the sauce was a bit too sweet. Not spicy at all. Jackson enjoyed it, however, probably because of the sweetness and lack of heat. And the naan, although fine for scooping up pieces of chicken, had zero flavor of its own.
I like the idea of keeping heat-and-eat Indian food on hand for evenings when I don't feel like cooking, but want something other than a veggie burger. I'll have to check out the other Tasty Bite and Sukhi's flavors.
Jackson and Olivia are at that age now where we have to buy two of everything, when it comes to toys. Racecars or dolls, they really don't have a preference -- all that matters is that Olivia can have the same toy Jackson is playing with, and vice versa. Here they are with Mr. Potato Head 1 and Mr. Potato Head 2. Whatever keeps the peace!
